Crack the Sky: Preternatural Chronicles, Book 8 (The Preternatural Chronicles) Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
In the heart of darkness...do what must be done.
Depweg is lost in time, unwittingly finding himself in a stream of reality that has broken off from the single river our universe safely resides upon. John has no choice but to do the impossible and retrieve his best friend or risk the two parallel timelines crashing into one another. Teaming up with the newcomer, Jose, our hero, must act quickly to prevent a catastrophic flood of crashing realities.
Poised at the center of our galaxy lies the most destructive force in the known universe, and John will get a firsthand experience at its unimaginable power. To save Depweg, our hero must travel through the supermassive blackhole, and back in time to find a single needle in a thousand haystacks.
Waking up in a strange place, Depweg is gifted with something he hadn’t known he had craved since John had first told him of the unstoppable prophecy and coming apocalypse; solace. For the first time in years, Depweg can take a breath, finding peace in the knowledge that the end of the world is far, far away. There’s only one thing that could make his relaxing vacation even better while simultaneously providing the perfect reason to never go back....
Having lost everyone he cares about, a defeated, hopeless young man will allow chaos into his heart in exchange for a chance at revenge for the fallen. All too late, he realizes the cost as the law of unintended consequences proves to be absolute, and a war is waged on people the young man once called friend.
Behind the scenes, powerful marionettes pluck at fraying strings, guiding the story toward its inevitable conclusion. Will John be able to cut away his strings to become a real boy? Or will he remain a puppet to his fate?
If you like Jim Butcher, Shayne Silvers, Cameron O’Connell, Kevin Hearne, Steve McHugh, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Shannon Mayer, or K.F. Breene, you won't be able to put down the highly addictive Preternatural Chronicles.

John Cook's best friend, Depweg, is someone who has lived virtually his entire life alone with no chance of a normal life. An accident involving time travel results in him being transported to the Eighties where he discovers his chance to live a quote-unquote normal life. Unfortunately, it has the potential to unmake everything in existence. Horrific choices must be made, consequences will happen that could not be imagined, and some really good distractions from the apocalypse that has been building for multiple books.
This book is definitely full of gut punches.
Hunter Blain weaves a story that reflects the massive amount of research that went into the action and plot. Once again, he has amazing characters that grip your imagination and make you love them. Yet leaves you always wanting more.
I love Crack the Sky for many reasons; including Blain’s trademark humor but it is John Cook’s relationship with others that engage your mind. It is truly a place to visit and thrive.
When is the next book coming?
Depweg, his oldest friend (who happens to be a Werewolf) has an equally important story arc in this book. As a matter of fact, his portion of the story actually had me in shock. First, it was his absolute bliss at his new lot in life that had me totally invested in his story. Then, the craziness that happened next shook me to my core. I know it was just words on a page, but the weaving of those words made me FEEL the story.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
As the series is also a tribute to Hunter's doppelganger best friend( his words, not mine), you can feel the love and respect given to one lost.
Hunter has outdone himself with the plot and twists and as much as I'd like to strangle him, we NEED him to continue writing. So maybe just mild torture.
Seriously though, Read this whole series for what it is. A rip roaring good time and tribute to a friend. It is snarky and well written and has loads of laughter to brighten the day after epic battles. Worth every minute of time and dollar spent.

Well this got weird, fast.
Another character heavy installment of this roller-coaster ride of a series.
As per usual your normal tropes are smashed to pieces, stuck together with gaffer tape and reformed into something warped but beautiful.
Hunter has gone to town with a strong plot many laughs, a bucket of tears and some nostalgia which will make you want to reread the series again.
Strap in for the ride and John On!
I have laughed And cried so much my wife made me finish the book outside which I humbly did after bitching for an hour thanks again Hunter Blaine
